Waffle House shooting: multiple people killed and injured



Quote:
Four people were killed and four others injured when a man naked from the waist down and wielding an assault-style rifle opened fire at a Waffle House in Tennessee early Sunday, police said.

The suspected gunman was identified as Travis Reinking, 29, who police believe is from Morton, Illinois. The gunman ran from the scene after a patron at the restaurant wrestled the rifle away from him, police said. Police on Sunday morning were using dogs and a helicopter to search a wooded area near the restaurant where the gunman was last seen.

The guy who tackled him has balls of steel. This doesn’t seem like a typical mass shooting. Sounds like he was more drugged out than crazy.

Saw on Twitter someone identified the shooter as a white supremecist... at this point that appears to be fake news from the left, unless I’m missing something.

Anybody that gets drugged out is crazy. Just like I feel anybody that kills another human is not in his right mind. So in my way of thinking there is no chance this shooter is in his right mind drugged or not.

It sounds like bs. They said the same thing about the Parkland shooter. If it were true, that would be the primary take away from the story.

Common sense says this guy was on hard drugs and there’s no racial motive. However, that doesn’t fit the Far Left narrative.

Being naked from the waist down should be a Red Flag.

It's coming out now that he has had very clear mental health issues (no surprise). Nothing here has to do with white supremacy.

His dad may be in some hot water. Sounds like he gave the weapons back to his son after authorities had instructed him not to following one of his mental health flare ups. Clear case where gun control of some form is needed.

People on the Left are dying for another Dylan Roof. They even tried to paint the Vegas shooter as a WS, when he shot up a concert that was 99% white.

It's likely dad broke the law, what other laws would change what happened?

What laws did the father break? I'm ignorant, so legitimately asking the question.

Any gun control that prevents people with mental health issues from buying/owning guns would be great IMO.

That's not for me to say, but shouldn't be too difficult.

My brother has bipolar disorder, he's a perfect example. Can't get his CDL for his job (or at least couldn't for a while, based on medication he was prescribed), but could walk into any store and buy a gun. That's F'ed up. My brother has never shown violence toward anyone aside from himself, but I don't believe he should be allowed to own a gun due to being bipolar and the way that can affect a person.

I don't know why the guns would be released to the Dad. And I don't know why the Dad would give them back to the son.

He was no longer allowed to have guns. His father took possession of his guns but gave it back to him. Hence, they were illegal for him to have.

The 2nd on is what is puzzling. No problem with the guns being given to pop.

The problem is with the mind set of the American People. Other places have guns and yet the US by far proportionally have the most gun violence. I feel a rant coming on so I will stop myself now....

Be safe, arm yourselves!

Why was he no longer allowed to have guns, legally? Again, I am ignorant here, but it seems the authorities just basically told his dad it would make logical sense that his son did not have access to guns. As far as I know, there was no law saying he couldn't have the guns.

There's no law prohibiting prohibiting people with mental health problems from owning weapons. That's kind of the point... wth are you talking about?

They have not caught him yet.

Just what I heard, he had issues they took the guns away and gave them to pop.

" Possession of a firearm by the mentally ill is regulated by both state and federal laws.

Federal Law
Under 18 U.S.C. § 922(d), it is unlawful for any person to sell or otherwise dispose of any firearm or ammunition to any person knowing or having reasonable cause to believe that such person “has been adjudicated as a mental defective or has been committed to any mental institution.” "

Ok, so that's news to me. So his dad did in fact break an actual law it seems. Thanks vamps. It will be interesting to see what happens with him.

The problem is, aside from odd cases like this, it's very rare that someone selling a gun would know the other person has a mental illness.

And of course bc he was taken alive, the left is pointing to it as white privilege. Yeah, I’m sure the Nville police would’ve gotten away with lighting him up with all of the media covering the manhunt.

It doesn't matter to me weather it's legal or not, it's a bad idea and the Dad certainly should have known better.

I think everyone itt agrees with that, 14Rtard. The question was about the legality to determine whether or not he will face actual repercussions so that ideally things like this don't happen again.
